Summary

Developing countries, once economically marginal, are now a critical part of the world's economy. Non-OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries account for three-quarters of the world's population, three-quarters of real gross domestic product growth over the last decade and nearly two-thirds of the world's energy, steel, and copper consumption (1). China and India constitute a sizable part of this development, but many other countries are showing impressive economic growth; Bangladesh and sub-Saharan Africa are projected to grow at around 6% this year (2).
